Annual health checks for your pets
Your beloved companion, be it a cat, dog, or any other furry friend, ages and develops health conditions much faster than humans. It’s essential to provide them with the care they need to lead happy and healthy lives. Many diseases and health issues can be discovered early through your pet’s annual health check. At Torquay Animal House Vet in Torquay, we understand the importance of these routine assessments and offer comprehensive pet health checks to ensure your pet’s well-being.
The importance of annual health checks
Early disease detection: Pets are masters at hiding signs of illness, but regular health checks by a veterinarian can reveal subtle changes that might indicate a developing health issue. Early detection is crucial in initiating timely treatment and giving your pet the best quality of life.
Preventive care: Annual health checks provide an opportunity to discuss preventive measures, such as vaccinations, parasite control, and dietary recommendations, to keep your pet in optimal health.
Senior pet care: As pets age, their health needs change. For senior pets, we may recommend more frequent health assessments and screening blood tests to catch age-related conditions early.
What to expect during a pet health check
During your pet’s annual health check at Torquay Animal House Vet, our experienced veterinarians will conduct a thorough examination, including:
- Physical examination
- Dental examination
- Vaccination review
- Discussion of any concerns.
- Recommendations for preventive care
We recommend having your pet’s health checked by a veterinarian each year to catch potential issues before they become more serious. Regular pet health checks not only help extend your pet’s lifespan but also enhance their quality of life.
In addition to annual pet health checks, Torquay Animal House Vet offers a range of other services to address your pet’s unique needs. These services include behavioural consults, cancer care and chemotherapy.
